L’Oréal, the French cosmetics giant, was found guilty today of racial discrimination after the highest court in France heard that executives had sought an all-white team of sales staff to promote its shampoos.
La Cour de Cassation was told that Garnier, L’Oréal’s beauty products division, tried to keep black, Asian and Arab women from selling its Fructis shampoo in French supermarkets.
Adecco, the temporary recruitment agency whose Districom division hired the hostesses, was also found guilty of racial discrimination.
L’Oréal expressed “disappointment” over the judgment, which ends three years of legal wrangling over the discrimination claims.
